Jay’e R., My Music Is Timeless


For R&B/Pop singer and songwriter Jay’e R., hard work and determination are the golden rules to his success as an independent artist. He began singing at age 6 in his hometown of Ivanhoe, NC influenced musically by Whitney Houston, Peabo Bryson, Maxwell, and Celine Dion. With his smooth tenor voice, and amazing falsetto, Jay’e has been compared to male vocalists Phillip Bailey, Eric Benet, and Maxwell. He began as a freelance songwriter in 2009 and in 2010, after relocating to Charlotte, NC, he continued his musical journey posting cover songs on YouTube under his legal name before changing his stage name to Jay’e R. which comes from the suffix Jr. as he is named after his father.

In the two years that Jay’e has been in the industry he has received a lot of recognition for his music including 13 Top 20 hits including five #1 songs on the NC R&B and Pop charts and he’s been nominated for 9 music awards from Best Pop Artist to R&B Artist of the Year. His Top 20 hits include his spring 2013 debut release “Something ’bout The Way….” (#15, Reverbnation Charlotte R&b/Soul charts); the October 2013 release of “Tonight’s Your Night” (#1, Reverbnation Charlotte R&b/Soul charts) honored him with #1 artist for 12 weeks and gained international exposure; and the February 2014 “I’ve Found Love” peaked at #5 on the North Carolina R&B charts. After achieving a larger following, Jay’e began working with other producers to compile music for an album which is preparing to release soon.

In 2015 Jay’e stepped into the arena of radio with his own independent music show, Underground Soundz on Blog Talk Radio. He’s also released his first smash of the year, “I Never Thought.” The single entered Number One Music’s Top 100 at #96 before skyrocketing to #3 on the Pop charts and peaking at #2. “I Never Thought” hit #1 on the Charlotte Pop charts and is currently his most liked single since his release of “Tonight’s Your Night.” As he continues on his journey of music success, it is very clear that Jay’e is evolving and emerging into an artist whose music will remain timeless.
